"Tell me one easy method of remembering all the 72 Melakartha ragas sequentially....without memorising them" in   Music/Vocal Music/Indian Vocal Music/Indian Classical Music/Carnatic Music

There are only 2 ways - one , you should memorize (or) two, you should be a prodigy. There are no shortcuts. I remember one occassion when Ravikiran (now gottuvadyam exponent) was a child surrounded by vidwans and wizards in Music Academy. Each vidwan asked in different permutations like - what ragam is 67th Melakartha ; what is the name of 3rd ragam in 6th chakra etc. etc.. Without a wink, he casually told the answers and was playing. So, if you are very particular in reciting or spelling out the melakartha ragas , then you have to memorize just like any other poems we did during our schooldays. Finally, what is the purpose you need to remember the melakartha ragas and their technical details. Are you preparing for any competitions or any other ? Fundamentally by looking at the arohanam and avarohanam, you can nearly find out the chakra and the melakartha number. Then you can refer the chart.for the name of the ragam.

"How difficult is learning Veena? I can attend two classes a week in the weekends." in   Music/Instrumental Music/Indian Instrumental Music/Veena

Each instrument has its own specifics. In case of veena, there are many things that has to synchronise to play perfectly. At the outset, you must know the song that you are playing by heart. Secondly, you should start in the correct speed , so that you will be able to play the fast tempo, if any, in the song comfortably. Then your index and middle fingers should pluck the strings alternatively according to the thalam. Fourthly, your little fingers should put thalam correctly, because this is the one which is unique to veena, which is not available in other instruments. Fifthly, your left hand fingers should swipe on the frets smoothly according to the song. For this , you should be able to locate the swarasthanas even without light (ie. you should be familiar with the swarasthanas). If all these synchronize, then you can play perfectly. 2 classes per week is ok. You have to practise , which is compulsory for any instrument learners.

"Is it important to have knowledge of classical music to learn any instrument?" in   Music/Instrumental Music/Indian Instrumental Music/Veena

It is always better you know what you are playing. Definitely there is a difference playing a known music and just playing the notes. If you are just playing the notes , then you can play only flat music with no manodharma. It is like asking a drama artist to just read the script instead of act with emotion/s based on the script

"How many months does it take to learn the veena." in   Music/Instrumental Music/Indian Instrumental Music/Veena

You can learn to play the basics in a few weeks - ie. to play sarali varisa, janta varisa etc. If you practise well, you'll be able to play Geethams in few months , say in 6-7 months (if you learn systematically). Then there are different levels. You'll be introduced to Varnams. Here you'll be given good exposure to different ragas. The full essence of every ragam is taught in 2 kalas. This may take about one-half yrs . After this level, you'll be taught Keerthanas. There is no end to learning this level. There are simple to most toughtest songs. Then you'll be taught to play manodharma sangeetham viz. Pallavi, niravals, kalpana swaras etc. Your guru will be the best guide to tell you when you are well equipped with playing veena on your own.

"I Want to learn Verna online. I have basic understanding of playing the instrument but would like to have the comfort factor of playing any song. Can anyone support this?" in   Music/Instrumental Music/Indian Instrumental Music/Veena

Veena is one of the most beautiful instrument to learn. Regarding the comfort factor, you'll be able to reach that level only after rigourous practise. While playing veena , there are many things that should synchronise eg. thalam, song by heart, free flow of swarasthanas, veena tuning etc. Unless everything in synch, you cannot achieve the perfection.
